Well good morning, you lovely soul! What’s going on with you? I’m just over hear waking up extra early from being so sore. My workout yesterday made me feel like my forearms were going to explode. And as much as I weirdly like the pain after a workout, I’m not looking for swole forearms. Just not what I’m going for.

You guys…Christmas is NEXT WEEK!! What the hells bells? It came up so damn fast this year! I’m actually heading out today to shop for our white elephant gift exchange AND birthday shop for both my husband and best friend. Both of them have birthdays close to Christmas so they often are forgotten about. So today I’m trying to find the perfect gifts for the two of them. Fingers crossed I can be creative for once in my life.

But get this. My best friend decided she wanted to do a little 5k for her birthday. And since it’s so close to Christmas, it’s an ugly sweater run. They give you an ugly sweater and hand you some hot chocolate with kahlua at the end of the race. The thing is, the day of the race is suppose to be 7 degrees F here. SEVEN! I hate the cold and I hate running as my primary exercise. But I love my best friend and will do whatever she wants to do for her birthday. Even if she is trying to freeze all of her friends to death. So here’s hoping that she decides that brunch and stuffing her face with birthday cake sounds more appealing. COME ON, LAURA, BE NORMAL!

Oh yay, I get to see my brother in law soon!! He is coming in to town with his girlfriend and we are gonna do all sorts of family stuff! I can’t wait to squish his little face! He’s the absolute best and is a senior in college so it’s so fun to keep seeing him grow up every year! He’s almost out in the real world! So cool!!

Ok, that’s all I have to talk about today. Now go make this shake because it’s super easy and extra tasty!! Oh yeah, and PS – stay tuned for THREE holiday inspired recipes next week that you’ll definitely want to have at your holiday celebration!!

    Bummmmer. Despite being a longtime subscriber, I seem to have mislaid the email. Does that mean I can never see the recipe again?? (Save us Paleomg!)

    Do you have a good protein powder you recommend that doesn’t have dairy, gluten or soy?

    1. juli says:

      you can use collagen instead of protein powder!
